Storyline

The lead character in McGee and Me! is an 11 year old cartoonist Nicholas "Nick" Martin who draws a character named McGee who helps him through his struggles at home and school, with a little extra help from the Bible. (Nick sometimes puts McGee into Bible-based cartoons to help work through his dramatic problems). The series was shot in Hollywood and featured Joseph Dammann as Nick Martin, with guest stars like Orel Hershiser, Dick Van Patten, Carol Lawrence, Grant Goodeve, and Jerry Houser. The first McGee was launched in 1989. Although shot on film, McGee and Me! was the first made-for-video production to air on network television (ABC-TV), and was a winner of over twenty awards.

A contemporary Christian view of the plot outline and summary
31 October 1999 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

. This series is an upfront Christian presentation about the world of an eleven year old boy named Nicholas and his little cartoon friend McGee. Nicholas is a completely normal kid who uses a passage from Bible to learn about life's everyday issues. In the 12 episodes (each 30 minutes long) Nicholas learns:

-telling lies hurts others, especially if the lie is mistaken for the truth.

-the value of being humble and accepting that some people have certain talents you don't.

-the value of obedience and being wise when making decisions

-the value of showing love and kindness to others--no matter who they are.

-when you trust in God you never have to worry about being alone or afraid.

-jealousy causes a lot of hurt, anger, and frustration--especially for the one who's jealous.

-about the process and the payoff of making right (and wrong) decisions.

-the importance of keeping things in the right perspective and putting faith in God, not people.

-about God's love for people who are hard to love.

-about courage and where to find it.

-the importance of caring for others and "loving your neighbor as yourself".

-about making choices and hopefully discovering what's really important in the process.

The series can be ordered individually or as a set from chrbook.com or from the producers: Focus on the Family/Tyndale House.
